Guys sorry I haven’t posted for a while. Now I have something exciting to share with you. Considering recent events in Crimea, I try to cheer myself up a bit and get out of my comfort zone.

If you like foundations that have super sheer coverage and feel very lightweight, definitely try L’oreal’s Nude Magique. It looks very natural! Mine is in the shade 150 Nude Beige.

I also got a new eye cream, which is great, and two new concealers.
First, I needed a new undereye concealer. Since I heard so many positive reviews on Rimmel’s Wake me up concealer, I decided to get it. Mine is in the shade 020 True Ivory. It’s really moisturising and covers dark circles beautifully.
Second, I got my fav concealer for pimples and highlighting. True Match by L’oreal is seriously amazing stuff. However, I couldn’t find it in my shade 3 Creme, so I got 4 Beige and it came soooooooo pale, like almost white, so I am a little upset. But it really is a wonderful concealer.

Since I had a couple of hours to spend in duty free zone in Dubai, I decided to buy a couple of new makeup items.
First, I needed a good undereye concealer. So I popped into Mac.

Select Moisturecover concealer is wonderful – it hides dark circles, moisturises skin and looks natural. Mine is in the shade NW25.

Next, I picked a new blush. It is Mac’s mineralize blush in Warm Soul, which is a beautiful peachy gold color with some subtle shimmer. It can also be used as eyeshadow.

And finally, I got a new brown eyeshadow from Benefit. Very pretty dark chocolate color with shimmer. The shade is called ‘kiss me, i’m tipsy’

I really enjoyed shopping in Dubai Duty Free. They have lovely Arabic souvenirs, cool stuff for home, candy, makeup and insane amount of perfume.
Whenever I go to a vacation, I always get a new perfume. I use it during my vacation, and then when I go back home to my routine, this smell just brings back all of those fun memories 🙂
So this time I was stunned by Cavalli perfume counter. They all smelled amazing and it was super difficult to pick one. I don’t remember the names, but I liked the new pink one, ‘exotic’ something, and the black one. Cavalli perfumes are very bold, sexy and quite sweet. So if you are a fan of fresh scents, you are probably going to like them.
I ended up buying a set of Just Cavalli perfume 75ml and body lotion. Nice value for around $90 and lovely smell. It’s floral and quite sweet, very sexy and daring, great for young women.

I don’t have enough words to express my obsession with this cute little bag from Oasis. I recently did a post on this bag and two other, but it’s just amazing. And goes with so many outfits. It’s out of stock at House of Fraser (where I originally got it), but you can buy it at Asos or your local Oasis.
The boots are from River Island (check out my previous posts). Wore them the first time today and they are not only stylish but extremely comfy, too.

And yep, I fed swans today. This is a very relaxing thing to do btw. These majestic and beautiful creatures are simply mesmerising.

I finally got my packages yesterday. And I am absolutely loving shoes from River Island. It’s only been once that I had a bad shoe experience with RI, but all the shoes that I or my mum purchased from them lately are beautiful and VERY good quality. These stunning black boots I found on sale for only half the price, so I purchased them immediately. I love everything about them – the gold detailing, straps, lovely black leather and the fact that they are insanely comfortable. The only bad thing is that when I first tried them, it turned out the chains were slightly too long, hence awful and very loud sounds while walking. But I fixed it by removing one link from each chain. They still look fab but now in silence.

Second pair of boots I got, are these cognac ones from Aldo. I don’t own much shoes/bags or anything else of this color. I think black is easier to style, however I really liked them. Just like the RI boots, these ones are very nice quality, fit well and are comfy. I feel like it’s fine to get a cheaper faux leather pumps/ballet flats/sandals, but with boots it’s reasonable to pay a bit more and get leather ones because obviously you are wearing them when it’s cold and it’s great to have good quality shoes for winter season.

And finally, the last pair I wanted to show you guys, are these nude pumps that my Grandma gave me as a bday gift. They are also from Aldo. These classic beige heels I am going to wear a lot in Spring because the look great with literally any outfit! I am also thinking of bying the some ones in black patent since I love them so much. Also they are pretty comfortable which is a massive plus, too.

Just received my new phone case and i love love love them. I got all of them on sale. The one that has lights is from Textile Federation and I found it at Asos. It was around $16.
The two others are from River Island (of course 🙂 and they were only $6 each!
The gold one is my favourite. It’s by RI and it has this very expensive and fashionable feeling to it.
The Ring Ring one is by Skinnydip, which is a cool UK-based brand that does iphone cases and stunning plastic clutches with heave embellishment. Soooo pretty.
